    I don't know if you can really call this card old yet, but my 5770 is still a beast!

    Well I did some digging and here is what I found. I usually pass along my old cards so "gems" like my 2900XT and my other X1900XT found new homes.

    But here we have my X1900XT Master card and 2 X800's and my "emergency card"

    It's a PCI and appears to be a Compaq OEM card. It is labelled "Compaq Nitro 64V" and the large chip is Cirrus Logic. It saved my bacon over the years.

    my GeForce 6600GT is still alive tho, tho its not high end, but its interesting to see how it competes with the older generation FX 5950 Ultra and 9800 XT at that time XD

    Its from a dell xps 710. Pics are taken with my htc sensation, it has a pretty good 8mp snapper on it.

    If they are too big i can post re sized ones if required.

    Hehe I had a 5800 for all of an hour. I bought it as an upgrade for my Ti4200. I was big on playing Raven Shield at the time and it actually ran WORSE. So I took it back to the shop and bought a 9600XT and have been Red Team ever since.

    Mine is a custom PCB made by Palit, fan shroud is ugly and HS is not as effective (idling at ~55C) Fan is already busted lol. Its also my last AGP card, i was supposed to replace it with an ATi X1650XT AGp but it proved to be difficult to find.

    If i had chosen the 9600XT instead of 5900XT, i might have kept it longer lol, 5900XT was a decent card until the SM2.0 games start pumpin out (HL2, FarCry etc)
